Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response

I have studied your case with diligence

There is possibility of nerve entrapment.
You may need EMG-NCV nerve conduction study.
You can consult your doctor further treatment.

Another possibility of sudecks osteodystrophy due to prolonged immobilisation.
Physiotherapy is very important here.
Ultrasound ,TENS and wax bath may help.
